Vote for Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Dawn Lift-Off

The judging panel of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition (operated by BBC Worldwide and London’s Natural History Museum) have selected photographs by Visionary Wild instructors Jack Dykinga and Justin Black from among 41,000 entries for inclusion in a set of fifty top images open to public voting for the inaugural People’s Choice Award.

Dykinga’s photograph, Dawn Lift-Off, is an explosion of snow geese taking flight en masse at New Mexico’s Bosque del Apache wetlands, while Black’s Apex Predators, made last year in Brazil during our Jaguars of the Pantanal expedition, captures the peak action of a mature male jaguar capturing an eight-foot yacare caiman, clearly demonstrating the power, grace, and hunting prowess of this remarkable animal. Voting is open until September 5th, 2014, and the winner will be announced at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards ceremony to be held in London in October.
